Kettering snooker star Kyren Wilson has booked a place in the last 16 of the Indian Open.

The 23-year-old claimed an impressive 4-1 victory over Ben Woollaston in Mumbai this morning, having beaten Alan McManus 4-0 in his first-round clash.

Wilson, who last week reached the semi-finals of the Snooker Shootout in Blackpool, lost the first frame against Woollaston.

But he stormed back with four frames in a row to secure his success and included excellent breaks of 119 and 105 along the way.

The Northamptonshire player will face either Joe Perry or Rod Lawler in the last 16 in the ranking event.
